Primo Rockin' Beats

I copped two records this week whilst in my "break to the beat" mode. Recently I heard someone play a copy of LLOYD PRICE's "They Get Down" track from 1973 on GSF records and realised
that it was the horn loop used by DJ PREMIER on BIG SHUG's track "The Jig Is Up". Still with me? Well, suffice to say that I didn't own either record and felt I needed to correct that. That's unusual for me not to have a PRIMO joint if it's a banger. But that was only a short term problem until this week when I finally found BOTH the "JIG IS UP" bootleg(?) 12" and the LLOYD PRICE on a GSF 45rpm single. And as a funk track goes the LLOYD PRICE is tough, but there's no doubt it's those funky horns which PRIMO flipped that catch your ears every time. Once again the former GANG STARR beatmaker takes something simple and makes it extra-dope using his trusty formula. He certainly has an ear for that hip hop sound. Check out both the soundclips below...

DRASAR what's up man!

I knew where I could find the BIG SHUG 12" - it had been lying dormant in a regular spot I hit. And the LLOYD PRICE - it's amazing how quick you can find a joint when you know the title. That was another £1 record, and I picked up 2 copies of the 45 at the same time.

D the record shops here in London have thinned out dramatically and diggers have been complaining, but YO records haven't disappeared...! They're still out there to be found but it means travelling further between spots.

Plus my sixth sense of smelling records from a mile off always helps ;o)

Great to see you here DRASAR as always.
